Oh the Huge Manatee 2
More Zepplin fun as we see the Graf this time, coming into New York and vicinity after "just" 96 hours.. 3 days! travelling from Europe. That's sort of crazy.

Not 1926, Probably 1929
Nice footage of the LZ 127 Graf Zeppelin.
The LZ 127 made its first trip to Lakehurst in October 1928, so this film cannot be from 1926. The 1928 trip took 111 hours, so this film is probably of the arrival on the 2nd trip to Lakehurst in August 1929, prior to circumnavigating the globe (starting and ending at Lakehurst).
